A Multifiber mechanical switch with a plastic-molded ferrule and two guide-pins has been developed for transfer connection of 1.55µm zero-dispersion fibers. The switch has a low insertion loss of 0.35 dB and a switching time of 3 ms. In this letter, the structural design and performance are described.
